What an experience = met some of the past winners of the show and three of the juniors all of whom were very friendly and spent a lot of time talking with guests. The food was beyond excellent. The main dining room offered some of the master chef choices to passengers not on the Master Chef portion of the cruise, it was nice for them to get a chance to enjoy the treats. We had a nice balcony cabin with great room stewards, they took care of our every need. We were unable to dock at Grand Turk due to high seas and wind, but we never felt it on the ship. We were always comfortable although it was a bit rock and roll sometimes when we were walking. All in all a great ship, wonderful crew. The mid size is also very nice, no long lines for the main dining room.

Great Time on the Master Chef Cruise

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VH 8046
Plenty of room for the two of us, adequate closets. Had a fridge, a small desk and couch and balcony for two. More passengers in this cabin would have been a bit tight. Had more than enough hangers which was very welcome for two women.
